Exercise Physiology / Physiotherapy for Tennis Elbow

What is tennis elbow?:

Tennis elbow, otherwise known as lateral epicondyle tendinopathy, is the most common overuse syndrome in the elbow. Tennis elbow occurs when the tendons that join the forearm muscles on the outside of the elbow become inflamed and damaged. This leads to pain and tenderness on the bony prominence on the outside of the elbow (the lateral epicondyle).
